The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations Fellowship Programme is launching a call for applications for emerging leaders from Europe and North America interested in engaging with the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
This year’s edition will invite 15 emerging leaders from Europe and North America on an exposure visit to three or four countries in the MENA region that will take place during the first half of December 2014.
The exposure visit will allow fellows to engage with prominent personalities and institutions in areas such as Government, International Organizations, civil society, media, social impact entrepreneurs, religion and culture. It is expected that through gaining a deeper understanding of the MENA region, fellows will be better able to identify bridges for communication, social business opportunities and dialogue entry points between the two regions.
The Call for Applications guidelines attached provide all details on documents required. Applications should be sent no later than 26 October 2014 11:00PM (New York time) to 2014UNAOCfellows@gmail.com (all questions should be directed to this email address).
